Visiting Professor and a field trip!

We had a visiting professor at the Marotz Homeschool today.  Uncle Sam joined us to present a lecture about the planets.  He's a natural teacher and storyteller, and had Alex engaged from start to finish.  She first designed a spaceship and drew up a list of everything she'd need for the trip.  Then they started the journey to each planet. 
 At each planet, Alex drew a picture of the most notable characteristics. Her final chalkboard was a masterpiece!
 Then we took a break and headed to the apple orchard with Auntie Carrie, Uncle Sam, Vera and Grandma Mary (who is in town for a few days!!)
Grandma Mary and Justin spotted the BEST apples in the orchard.
